A reliable and compact international electrical adapter is almost as important to a flashpacker as their favorite gear it powers.
There are countless international travel adapters available that are made for specific countries as well as all-in-one worldwide versions in varying prices and quality. The REI Multination Travel Adpapter is the best choice for a true round the world (not as useful for single country trips) trip for flashpacking and backpacking alike. The Multination Travel Adapter cleverly transforms from the 4 most commonly used plug configurations usable in more than 175 countries. Unlike many other similar adapters, this has a handy 6A fuse overload protector which comes in handy when using electrical plugs in questionable and unstable sources, because you never know where you’ll be. Along with a very good level of construction, this adapter even feels premium due to the thermoplastic rubber coating which adds grip.
